Mr. Wootton-Davies

asked the Secretary of State for War what steps are being taken to restore public services such as electric light and power and sewerage in the liberated towns in France and Italy.

Mr. A. Henderson

The Allied Armies in the theatres of operations give such assistance as they can to the liberated peoples in effecting essential repairs immediately necessary to the public services hi their towns and countryside. The form which this assistance may take includes expert advice, supervision and the supply of stores.
